Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (New York, NY).

Interview

On campus recruiting like all other banks, then first round interviews on campus with a girl from HR or a relatively junior person, then took some ridiculously long assessment test, then final round superday at the company office (3-4 interviews, 30 min each). They did draw out the process a lot longer than I would have liked, but they gave me two weeks to decide and let me pick my start date the following summer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Macquarie Group.

    Interview

    1 standard telephone interview, followed by testing at the bank. The 2nd round interview was more technical, difficult but fair. The 3rd and final interview was tough, but again, very fair considering the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard option pricing and hedging questions, followed by a discussion regarding the greeks.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Macquarie Group (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in January 2011.

    Interview

    You first get a call from their HR. She was very nice and asked behavior questions, like"decribing one of your most recent successful teamwork", and "What is your career goal", "Why macquarie ?". Then asked two analytical questions, first was how to compute the speed of new york subway train. Then second was the sqrt of 1000. Both of them were very easy.
